PHENOMENOLOGY AND COGNITION IN SEMANTICS OF THE WORD ETO
ABSTRACT
A consistent non-contradictory interpretation of the functional features of eto in oral discourse is offered within the framework of the theory of indication. It is suggested that the primary function of the Russian demonstrative is indication of the observability of the thing/event described in the utterance, or representation of phenomenological knowledge.
